A Bracknell businessman is closing his deli after four-and-a-half years because “running around” between it and his town centre pub was too much for him.
Neil Ellis, owner of Sejwix in Charles Square, decided to close the shop and move its equipment and food services to The Bull in High Street.
He is finalising the details which means he will able to open the pub for breakfast.
He said: “I opened Sejwix in 2005, but it has got too much for me running both the places at the same time.
“It’s a shame, but I’ve decided to shut Sejwix.
"The good news is we are bringing a lot of the services we provided at Sejwix to The Bull.
“We should soon be able to open at 8.30am and be able to provide breakfasts.
“It’ll be slightly different things like organic muesli and yoghurt, but you will still be able to get a fry-up.
“I’d like our customers at Sejwix to know we are still here and will be providing breakfast for them shortly.”
Neil is also still waiting to hear whether he is a world record holder.
For Children in Need, Neil and his staff made a burger weighing a whopping 97.3 kilograms, around 15 stone.
He has sent pictures of it to staff at Guinness World Records and has witnesses to when it was weighed, one of whom is Councillor Chas Bailey, mayor of Bracknell town.
He said it was a matter of waiting to hear back whether Bracknell is the home of the world’s biggest burger.
